Quilts: Future and Current




My design wall has not changed at all.
















But I have come up with this quilt design for those blocks.

This little quilt is next up in the UFO list. I haven’t figured out the cutting directions yet, I am hoping that EQ will guide me.









But before the rotary cutter gets going, this is what I am working on….


I have Going Dotty on the frame.






She is half quilted but I had to take a break.








Now, here is the question of the week. I have already made a scrappy binding from leftover quilt fabric. However I really like the look of this backing as possibly the binding. What do you think?



After you figure that out, check out the other design walls on Judy's blog.

  1. I think the backing fabric or a solid white would look good. What are you going to name this happy quilt?!

  4. I adore that quilt and I think the backing fabric would be a perfect binding. I guess you could choose one of the colors and use that. So many possibilities

  6. Wow, I feel like an outcast here but I like the scrappy binding.....and I like the backing too but not as much. :0)

    Love the design you cam up with for the blocks! Great solution without having to make more blocks.

  9. Gari great job on both projects. I like the backing for binding too although you can't go wrong either way.

  10. Oh Gari, I have been thinking about this dilema all morning and I am going with the scrappy dotty binding! I am anxious to see your final decision . . .

  11. so creative and I like the backing as a binding myself. I love your quilting. I have been practicing free hand quilting and I love using my long arm.

    I wanted to agree with you about a comment you made on my blog about patterns for some quilts-"quilter's jail" is sooo right, I like using EQ and making my designs too. Love yours for the blocks in the post.
